Iâm a good girl.
I live by a code that canât be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.
But Nikolai Kozlov re-writes my destiny with five simple words.
You belong to me now.
He's Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought.
And what he wanted was me.
He thinks he controls my fate, but what he doesnât know is, sometimes itâs the good girls you have to watch out for.
Iâm a dangerous man.
I live by a code. The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.
Sheâs a dancer. A beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply collateral.
Itâs a shame to destroy precious things.
But this is what bad men do.
The first thing I always notice about a person is their posture. I was raised to believe that good posture conveys good manners, as well as respect for those around you. Nikolai carries his posture like a casual âf#ck youâ to everyone around him. There is no decorum in his leather jacket, jeans, or his haphazardly laced motorcycle boots. Everything he wears is black, but the small glimpse of skin beneath is a riot of colors. Tattoos cover every inch of his exposed skin, including his throat.
Iâm not sure which is more offensive- the ink or the faux hawk atop his head. This is not the way you attend a ballet, nor is he the type of man I expect my father to keep company with.
âTanaka.â He reaches for my hand and kisses it in a way that few men would ever dare to do in my fatherâs presence. âYou dance beautifully.â
The words are unmistakably accented. Russian. And Iâm struggling to maintain my composure while making sense of this situation. My father has always been protective of me. His own men know better than to speak to me or look at me, but for this stranger, somehow, itâs okay.
My manners, at least, are still intact, so I reply as I should. âYouâve seen me dance?â
Nikolai flashes a boyish smile in contrast to the deepness of his blue-green eyes. âI like to invest my time in the arts.â

She likes all things chocolate, books that come with warnings, and putting her characters through hell. Her tales have been known to flirt with darkness and sometimes court it unabashedly altogether. Revenge themes and tortured souls are her favorites to write and this gives her an excuse to watch bizarre and twisted documentaries in her spare time.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I donât know if anything I could possibly say to express how good this book is. I have loved this series from the beginning and with each book I have grown more in awe of this writer and her words.
These two characters Tanaka and Nikolai are two of my favorites and their story is emotional and dark. They both have ugly past but somehow they heal each other. Iâm truly in love with these two and I am going to read this again but I just couldnât get enough of them. Iâm sad to see this series go and it breaks my heart that it is going to end. This is definitely one of the best mafia series to date.
